    For those that might be interested, EG sent the following message out to the mailing list today:

    The art of hand sewing

    Hand sewing with pig's bristles is the acme of English shoe-making.
    Come and see a demonstration of the craft this Saturday, along with our new hand sewn collection.

    [​IMG]

    This season we're delighted to have as full a range of hand sewn shoes as we can remember at Jermyn Street. The Dover has long been one of our most popular shoes - perhaps the style most closely associated with EG. For the new season it's complemented by several handsome new arrivals. All have aprons hand sewn with pig's bristles, an old English craft and as delicate and exacting a task as you can find in shoe-making.

    Two of our hand sewers will be visiting Jermyn Street this Saturday to demonstrate their craft and answer your questions on shoe-making. We'll have sparkling wine from award-winning Kent winery, Chapel Down.

    Saturday 29th September, 12 - 5pm | Edward Green, Jermyn Street, London

    That is the nicest picture of the Nevis that I've seen. I have a whole new appreciation for it and the 606 last

    606 is my favourite EG last. It looks great as derbys and monks IMHO.

    The picture of the Nevis is on the 606, right?

    With exception to the ankle stiching, the Nevis looks identical to the G&G Arran. G&G more than likely jacked the entire idea and just added some ankle stitching :lol: would love either long time

    I believe so. I doubt EG would combine storm welt and 888 on a derby boot.

    Any idea of the price for a RTW boot like the Nevis direct from EG?

    Leffot describes it as not quite purple, but not quite burgundy.

    Been ogling both today. Can't decide which way I would go. Was thinking about MTO Thorpe but the availability of the Nevis changes everything.

    yeah the Thorpe is G&G's priciest boot model (shell excluded) and only available as a MTO. would also be interested to know the price on the EG Nevis.

    Love both the Nevis and G&G Thorpe (I have a pair in Oak Pigskin and wear it all the time off work).

    There is not a sentence ever written about EG in which someone forget's to mention about...the pig bristles.

    Last time I was there the Galway (and other boots) were listed at £770. I suspect there will be a slight upcharge for the Nevis due to the hand sewn apron, in the same way that there is an upcharge on the Dover with respect to the standard EG shoe line.
